Harris (hamstring) has been deemed doubtful for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Harris practiced in full throughout the week until missing Friday's session, so his hamstring injury must be relatively new. He was only projected to provide depth in the secondary and potentially play a special teams role before sustaining the injury. Final confirmation on his status will be made closer to kickoff.
Harris (undisclosed) did not practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic Tampa Bay reports.
A string of absences is unlikely to bode well for Harris moving forward. As it currently stands, Harris finds himself clawing for a roster spot. Availability for the team's final two preseason games will be crucial for the 25-year-old out of Texas A&M.
The Buccaneers add another cornerback to their roster with the position currently riddled with injuries. However, with the secondary still expected to be healthy by the start of the regular season, Harris will have a difficult time making Tampa Bay's final roster.
Harris was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.
Harris signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints back in January, which was shortly after he was released by the team in December. After his struggles in 2017, he was always considered a long shot to make the Saints' final roster this season.
Harris signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Joel Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Harris began the 2017 season atop the Saints' depth chart but quickly fell from grace, which ultimately led to his release from the team in early December. The 24-year-old recorded 18 tackles (15 solo) in 11 games.
